Fishing Line Artificial Muscle

Research Shoot -1624

research conducted into the potential of tightly coiled fishing line to haul weight and act as an artificial muscle upon the application of external energy

tension difference when heat applied to coiled fishing line

]3 tension difference when heat applied to coiled fishing line

… IDEA: fishing line coils could be women into other wearable material to provide contraction feedback in navigation system and thus no need for application of external devices + more stream lined

… Tightly coiled fishing line interwoven into other natural fibres (video documentation)

… How to heat the actuators using metal coating and electricity
